Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Methadone Maintenance Treatment or ORT (Opiate Replacement Therapy) is the use of methadone as a substitute for someone who is addicted to opioids (heroin, OxyContin, codeine, Dilaudid, Percocet and others), helping with the recovery process reducing the cravings for the opioids or used as part of the admittance process to a substance abuse treatment facility that requires complete abstinence.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

What does Beth Israel's Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program - Clinics 8 and 8D offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

The recovery process is different for every individual, based on their specific needs. The methadone clinics at Beth Israel offer case management services that have been designed to address a full range of needs. Some of these services include: HIV pre- and post-test counseling, specialized services for women, psychiatric consultation and evaluation, assistance with housing applications and referrals, and legal services.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support

Chemical dependency problems affect the whole family. At MMTP, they offer education and support services to help disrupt the cycle of addiction. Support services including family preservation and reunification, family counseling and parent education and support groups. Additionally, they offer assistance with children’s education, mental and physical health issues, and domestic violence situations. They also address issues concerning child welfare involvement and other legal questions related to your family.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

Substance abuse counseling services assist patients in understanding addiction and recovery and increasing motivation for recovery. The substance abuse counseling program is committed to providing evidence-based comprehensive treatment services incorporating multidisciplinary modalities, and assisting patients in developing skills that lead to healthy and self-sufficient life styles. Aftercare clinics and counseling are available for ongoing support after the patient has stabilized.

Group Therapy

Group sessions are available to increase a patient’s knowledge about recovery and to strengthen their ability to cope with daily psychosocial stressors. Groups are also available for relapse prevention, dual diagnosis and gender-specific issues. Self-help groups are encouraged.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Life Skills

Vocational and educational services are available to any patient enrolled in Beth Israel’s MMTP clinics. These services assist with career exploration, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, employment search, placement and job retention. To ensure that this assistance is successful, their vocational rehabilitation counselors are available to provide individualized counseling, academic and vocational skills testing, and basic computer proficiency training.
